Photo a Day

12 May 2012
 Claire and I had a trip out to the South African shop in Redhill because we were running low on a couple of things that I consider "essential".  Claire always enjoys a trip to the South African shop and it brings back memories just with the smells and all the products :)

 Emily and I both fancied some cake but didn't have any in the house so we decided to make one.  Emily found a recipe on the internet that had had good reviews and we decided to try it.  I have to say, it was one of the nicest chocolate cakes I've made - light and moist.  We didn't fancy buttercream icing so melted a bar of Bournville chocolate and added a little bit of butter and milk to thin it a bit. The end result was delicious and once I've copied the recipe from Emily I'll post it on here.

 Be still my heart!   Love this photo - look at that little face :) xx   Alice was happy pottering around and playing with her babies while I was making lunch in the kitchen.  She's realised she can get both her babies in this little pram so it solves the problem of which one gets to have a ride.

Lunch this day, I had an orange and a tuna mayo (with some pepper and spring onion chopped in) sandwich and a cup of coffee.  Since Hugh's been doing his Personal Trainer course he's been giving me some advice on my "diet" (not actually dieting but rather trying to be more healthy in my choices). One of the things he's told me is that I should try to have protein and carbohydrate at each meal and, I have to say, I've been feeling better for it.

I went to my friend Mary last night to have my highlights topped up.  I really like the colours she's used this time.



  1. That photo of Alice is just so adorable, isn't this a great age? You are so lucky to have the opportunity to spend so much time with her. The new hair colours look fab, really flattering.
    And be sure to post that cake recipe soon ...

  2. You totally had me drooling at the sight of that chocolate cake!! Good heavens I bet I could eat the entire cake in a single evening. Nothing to brag about but so true!!...Alice is sure growing and contintues to be adorable!

  3. Great photos of both you and Alice. I'm looking forward to getting the cake recipe. Looks fabulous!
